Key West Photo Contest Finalists!

With well over 100 pictures of Key West submitted in the photo contest, I can really tell you guys are key crazy for the Conch Republic. And why wouldn’t you be, it’s one of the best places on earth!

Picking the finalists was nearly impossible. The sunset photos were unreal, I think we could have done a contest just on those alone. I definitely had a couple “wow” moments as I saw the photos roll in. I want to thank everyone so very much for taking the time to participate in the contest. I hope everyone had as much fun as I did looking at all the great shots.

In the end picking 3 was simply impossible, so I ended up going with a Top 4.

Here are you’re Top 4 Finalists for the Key West photo contest that I thought best represented the personality and charm of that southern most island we love so much. Please vote for your favorite! You can vote by leaving a comment below stating which photo is your pick or you can vote on the RSR Facebook page. Voting will end Tuesday at 8:00pm (EST).  Big Congrats to Shawn, Oliver, Jeff and Victoria for making the finals. One of you guys will have a Castaway Hat and Koozies coming your way!
